Welcome to Lockhart Shire Council

Home of the True Country Spirit

Lockhart Shire nestles in the heart of the Riverina and is one of the regions most productive agricultural and pastoral areas. Of strong pioneering heritage and steeped in history, Lockhart Shire's main towns and villages include Lockhart, The Rock, Yerong Creek, Pleasant Hills and Milbrulong. Each community has it's own unique character and history, and the Shire offers visitors a relaxed country atmosphere steeped in history.

Lockhart is centrally situated 62kms south-west of Wagga Wagga, 62 kms east of Narrandera and 105 kms north of Albury. The Rock is on the Olympic Highway 25 kms south of Wagga Wagga with Yerong Creek another 15 kms down the Highway.

Community Engagement Strategy and Community Participation Plan

At the June 2019 Council meeting, Council considered a draft Community Engagement Strategy and Community Participation Plan (which has been prepared as a single document) to satisfy the requirements of the Local Government Act 1993 and the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

The draft document includes the objectives of the strategy, principles of good community engagement, identification of stakeholders and guides to community engagement and community participation, and may be inspected by clicking here or at Council's office, 65 Green Street, Lockhart.

The Community Engagement Strategy and Community Participation Plan is on public exhibition until Friday, 26 July 2019, during which time comments and submissions will be received by Council.

All submissions received will be considered by Council prior to formal adoption of the document and should be made in writing, addressed to the General Manager.
